Installation

« Go back to Documentation

Installation of Magento WordPress Integration v3.1.2 requires editing a core Magento file. We will make a copy of this file so that if Magento is updated in the future it will not be overwritten. This first step is very important, and cannot be missed out.

I have prepared a version of the file for you, and it can be downloaded from BitBucket:

Download functions.php
